A "Detective" also called the other man using the number 510-790-6800.] Lucky for me, I was not able to hear "Mr davis" during the first call that led to us hanging up and giving me the opportunity to lookup both numbers.I got a call later from Mr Davis, still in a noisy room after claiming he'd be going outside to call me, saying that his wife was wanting to turn in the phone and take action.] Here is an example from one young man who wished to remain anonymous….I was on the app Plenty of Fish (POF) and "matched" and sent a message to a girl with the username "starfish3824".He tells it well why he got suspicious and thought it was a scam: "I was browsing Craigslist's "Casual Encounters" section when I came across this ad (TDS has blurred the faces because we're certain they are innocent girls whose photos are stolen off the web.) She is listed as age 18: "Hey Y'all my name is Katie and I just moved here from South Carolina for college I'm a cosmetology major currently attending Paul Mitchell, I love the beach and I absolutely love Italian food, I'm outgoing I'm spontaneous and very open minded I'm not looking for anything serious, something fun and casual with no strings attached I'm enjoying my youth and looking for someone to enjoy it with me, so if you're into that sort of thing leave me a message or your number if you want to speed up the process." She has two photos, cute girl, so I emailed her with my number.I get a text message from her within 24 hours saying "Hey its Katie!I was direct and asked what she was expecting from me: an online friend, a friend to hang out, or an intimate partner. I said that definitely not a problem and ask her if she was a lesbian.She replies with "friends maybe more" and I replied, sure we can be friends! She says she is and has acquired a girlfriend (age 19) during the 2 months shes been in Fresno.
I called Mr Davis and wherever he was was very noisy, could barely hear him, he claimed to be at work and he'd call me during his break.At that point, I had calmed down knowing I really wasn't in any trouble after finding out about the scam, I could tell that Mr Davis was just fishing for me to try and offer to pay him off or something without saying it just repeating the same thing over and over.In the end, because of the noisy room, all I heard him say was something about not wanting to waste my time and hung up.We hung up, I decided to Google the number only to find in the site 800notes.com[TDS Note: On Nov.21, 2016 we heard from another young man targeted by this scammer who ALSO identified himself as "James Davis" and used the number 843-274-8997.
